About the Author

Preston Norton is bisexual, slightly genderqueer, and married. His partner, Erin, is trying to put him on a diet, and he's revolting (both contexts apply). He has taught seventh grade and ninth grade English, mentored drug addicts, and mowed lawns (in no particular order). He is obsessed with 2001: A Space Odyssey and Quentin Tarantino.


"Norton's novel offers thought-provoking ideas about gender, sexuality, and compassion with plenty of comedy along the way."

--Publishers Weekly

Praise for Neanderthal Opens the Door to the Universe:

* "[A] funny and sweetly oddball book. At the story's core is an unsentimental treatment of a bullied kid and his one-time bully discovering their commonalities. That Norton accomplishes this without moralizing and in inventively rhythmic and pop-culture-saturated language only adds to the fun."--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"There's character development aplenty in this novel about what it takes to make the world a better place... Funny, well-plotted and sneakily thought-provoking...fans of humorous realistic fiction will find a lot to enjoy in Norton's first foray into the genre."


*"Hopepunk is perhaps the most foulmouthed, punk rock book to ever be written about religion and forgiveness. It's stellar. Jam-packed with plot and overflowing with characters who turn from hilarious to downhearted on a dime, it is a wonder that instead of seeming dense and manic, Hopepunk is instead clever and precise."

--Bookpage, starred review
"[S]harp humor, an infectious love of music, and an encouraging message: with hope, change is always possible."--Publisher's Weekly
Praise for Where I End and You Begin:

"[F]lies by in a stream of fast-paced action and nuanced character development... An entertaining queer romance."

--Kirkus Reviews
